I promised an update about the convention in Bonn, so here we go :)
I already arrived on Thursday which was relaxing (kinda) and I still had time for an appointment.
Friday (shortly before the hall opened)
That´s Sabine ... and Vinc from Tokyopop. The last meal for hours o_o
outside... even more people...
one of the coolest cosplays ever .... a DOMO-KUN!!!
The coolest of all .... Kulla! She was so damn cute ;_; *loves the cosplay to pieces*
A mini Link! The girls and the photographers loved him... and his mother and aunt were so proud (understandable). Still so small and he already posed like a pro.
The japanese guests of honour .... on the very right side: Tanemura-san.
I can´t really recall everything what happened. The german mangaka were nice, some were really amusing.
Once scene -even if Roda will kill me for telling- was like that:
me: Roda, you have to eat vegetables and fruit or else you catch the con scurvy!
Roda: No ... really? What happens?
me: Your tongue turns black!
It was nice and exhausting. I doddled more bunnies than ever before and met some people I see only at *that* con -like Andre. So some things never change.
One thing -the near-death-experience - what really scared me was the allocation of the limited Tanemura-Shikishis. I´ve never seen to many people getting hysteric, pushing, running and screaming. What a scene. Some girls were so close to purple after getting their Shikishi, some cried... most squealed.
I don´t know if I can say "I want that too" because... THIS was really freaky.
I bought just one Totoro key chain.... and coffee (bad taste)... and a Manju. That´s it. I would like to go shopping but I´m always too excited to remember the shopping-thing =_=;
The last day rushed by. I forgot some things in the hotel (pants and shoes ;_; ), the train had to stop in Bochum (" We don´t have an engine driver atm, please switch trains!" ... "What do they mean with that > we don´t have an engine driver?! Who drove the train?!!< ...") and I was tired from everything but i guess in 363 days I really want to go to Bonn again. Maybe ... :)
